Background or additional interest in one of the following would be a plus: geology or other aspect of natural history, nature drawing or environmental sculpture, or other nature/art skills, as would teaching experience in a school, in an environmental or outdoor education program, or at a camp, museum, or science center. You must enjoy working with children aged 8-15. We have excellent facilities including reference collections of rocks and minerals, insects, and plants, field and laboratory equipment, a darkroom, microscopes, an 8 inch reflecting telescope, and a 1000 volume library, all housed in a large nature center.

Our 700 acre campus has a range of habitats from floating acid bog to hardwood and conifer forests. We are close to many other mountain, meadow, lake, and river localities. The majority of our campers are with us for our full 7 week season.
